I pretty much quit testing my blood sugars when my doctor said that as long as my quarterlies were fine I shouldn't worry too much about day to day readings. I probably got a bit annoyed at that response to my trying to do the right thing. :)
I did end up telling my therapist about my thoughts. He didn't take them that seriously either. He says that waking up to suicidal thoughts like that seems to be a typical expression of my feeling distressed or overwhelmed. Mind you, I expressed them in a merely factual manner. And said I was ignoring them because I didn't intend to act on them.
I'm sure if I had expressed them in a more distressed manner, he would have answered with less calm detachment. :)
I think I'm taking it reasonably well that he's going away. It really only affected one of my appointments, and he just moved that up one day. And he says I can call him if I need to, and that he really does mean that. (And he likely does today. He might not feel the same way when he's gone. lol.)
I even asked him if he was looking forward to getting away for a few days. And he looked at me with uncertainty before deciding it was safe to admit that he was very much looking forward to it. And I didn't even mind that response, or remind him that it wasn't terribly polite to tell one's work that he was anxious to get away from it.
